Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker at Honeywell

Posted: Thursday, October 11, 2018

Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker returns to the Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater on Saturday, November 3 at 3 p.m. The corporate sponsorship is provided by Ambassador Enterprises. Tickets are $30, $48, $60 and $80 for the gold package.

Moscow Ballet consistently produces record-breaking seasons thrilling audiences from New York City to Los Angeles and from Miami to Calgary. Offering the classic ballets such as “Great Russian Nutcracker,” “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Swan Lake,” sold-out theaters attest to the public’s love and appreciation of the highest quality productions. The press confirms artistic excellence: LA Times, “Disarmingly poetic … bravura expertise,” Minneapolis Pioneer Press, “Sweeps you up in the bliss of beauty” and Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, “Stunning visuals, effortlessness dancing … full of joyful energy.”

The company of award-winning principal dancers and a corps de ballet of 40 Vaganova-trained ballerinas and danseurs travel to top demographic markets including LA, NYC and Chicago as well as to heartland towns such as Great Falls, Shreveport and Charlottesville annually. Averaging 100 performances during November and December, this phenomenon combines the highest caliber ballet with historic Russian theatrical traditions, including 10-foot-tall playful puppets, six colorful and hand-painted backdrops created with a 3-D effect, and hundreds of exquisite costumes.

Tickets may be purchased online at www.honeywellcenter.org or by calling the Honeywell Foundation Box Office at (260) 563-1102.
